Join a food tour to discover the secrets of Syracuse's culinary tradition. Explore the nuances that the street food of the former ancient Greek colony has to offer, including arancini (fried rice balls), impanate (breaded snacks), the fried cone of freshly caught fish, and granita or cannoli. Follow your guide to the ancient market in Syracuse for a tasting of paninetti with locally produced cheeses and cured meats. Enjoy a typical local liqueur. Relax and cool down on a hot afternoon with a Sicilian granita – made from fresh fruit and sugar – served in a glass with ice. Become a true expert on Syracuse cuisine as you relish Arancini fried rice balls stuffed with meat, cooked ham, spinach, pistachios, aubergines, and more. Then, it’s time to munch on a fried fish cone filled with various kinds of fried fish, caught that day. Savor an impanate, a delicacy with strong flavors. Relish this artisanal bakery product typical of Sicily, an oval-shaped, golden-colored calzone that can be stuffed with tomato sauce, vegetables, meat, cheese, potatoes and sausage, shrimp, and black olives. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a cannoli wafer, traditionally molded around a hot metal bar, filled with a sweet and creamy preparation made with ricotta cheese, candied fruit, crunchy pistachios, or dark chocolate chips.
